Several prophecies of the late fifteenth-century visionary Tecla Servent involved her in the politics of her day. When the Duke of Gandía took a wife, his mother-in-law and later the Duchess herself sent for Tecla and asked her to pray that God bless the marriage with children. In one of her ensuing visions, Tecla saw the Lord place a child among the Duchess's skirts. Inasmuch as the Duchess of Gandía was a cousin of Ferdinand the Catholic and the Duke was the Pope's son, the conception of an heir was of utmost importance to papal-Aragonese relations. Through Tecla's prophecies, the private sphere of the visionary intersected with the public sphere of international politics.
